Home Learning – Monday 2nd November

Good morning

I hope you had a relaxing half term break. It was rather strange being inside all week, watching the rain through the windows, wasn’t it?

I’m really looking forward to seeing everyone again on Wednesday. In the meantime, here are some activities for you to try at home. I appreciate that you may have work commitments so please do not worry if it is not all completed.

Daily Phonics: The children in our class are at different levels, so I’ve tried to include a range of activities.

For these activities you will need

  • phone, ipad or computer to show youtube lessons.
  • Paper
  • Pencils and pens
  • Lots of enthusiasm! 

For Monday, we would like you to show the children this letter teaching ‘sh’. This lesson is here

The format of the lesson is exactly the same as we do it in class ( hopefully we are just as full of enthusiasm!)

If you can print the attached handwriting sheet, then please use. Otherwise, don’t worry, writing the sound on paper is fine too. You can model it first, then ask your child to copy. Just make sure you do it in the same formation as in the video. 

The really important concept is that your child recognises the SOUND of each letter. If they can’t yet do this, write out the sounds on pieces of paper and hide them around the house, then go on a sound hunt! Look what I have found……. What sound is it? 

You could make 2 copies of the letters and turn it into a snap game!

When your child knows all the sounds, we want them to be able to blend 

Help on how to blend here

If your child is blending words, a game that you can play at home is here . This can be played with lots of different CVC words. 

If your child is blending sounds to make words, we will be using ‘fred fingers’ to help write the words

This is exactly how we will be doing this in school here

Not all children will be ready for this, so please don’t worry if your child is finding it difficult. We are always proud of them for having a go.

Daily Maths

For these activities you will need

  • Fingers!
  • Paper and pen
  • Lego or duplo
  • Any building blocks etc 

Counting forwards and backwards is so important every day. Can you count with your child up to 20? Then back from 10?

Write numbers 1-10 on pieces of paper, place on the floor and turn them over. Can your child turn one over, shout out the number and clap the correct number of times or jump the correct number of times? Then work through the rest of the numbers.

Building activity see attached sheet. I love this ‘Can you build this?’ activity. You make a simple model using a few construction pieces, and your child copies. 

This idea from the sheet is fun.

I’ve made a little model which I’ve got hidden under the table – I’ll see if I can tell you how to make it. First, take a blue brick, then put a yellow one on top… 

Can you make a secret model with five bricks and describe it for me to make?

One more thing you might want to do today 

Can you remember where our tree is?

What type of tree is it?

What did we call our tree?

What happens to the leaves in Autumn? 

Please post photos and comments on Tapestry or email me today debbie.shipley@allertonceprimary.com with how you are getting on with your home learning. If you want me to post the photos on the blog for our class to see, please let me know in your message. 

Have fun and please remember – I’m here to help you today.
